Motorola, which recently received a lot of attention thanks to the announcement of the Razr foldable, has released a new midrange phone called the One Hyper. Here's a quick look at what makes it a good phone.

Lenovo-owned Motorola recently promised that it will release flagship-level smartphones in the future. For the meantime, though, the company seems to enjoy itself working on smartphones with decent, albeit midrange specs. One of the company's latest offerings is the One Hyper.

The One Hyper has specs and a price tag that makes it “a budget version of the OnePlus 7 Pro,” The Verge noted. It has the look and feel of a top-tier device like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but has weaker specs compared to that.

Motorola succeeded in giving the One Hyper a premium all-screen look, with a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, by using a pop-up selfie camera instead of a notch or a punch hole. The display is surrounded by thin bezels on all sides, measures 6.5 inches diagonally, and it boasts of 2,340 x 1,080 resolution. Aside from a premium look, the One Hyper also boasts of 45W “hyper charging.”

As mentioned, the One Hyper is still a midrange device despite the premium look and feel. It is powered by a Snapdragon 675 processor, which is weaker than the Snapdragon 855 that powers today's flagships. It also has a meager 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Thankfully, the device will be able to last up to 38 hours on a single charge because of its large 4,000 mAh battery.

Despite being a midrange phone, the One Hyper offers a decent camera setup. At the back rests a 64MP primary shooter, and an 8MP ultra-wide lens capable of taking 118-degree shots. The camera hardware is backed by Motorola's camera software, which includes shot optimization features and an AI-powered night mode. The pop-up selfie cam in front, on the other hand, is a 32MP camera.

Motorola is set to launch the One Hyper in time for the holidays, and will sell it for $399, which isn't really bad when its specs and features are considered. It's definitely cheaper compared to the top-tier OnePlus 7 Pro. Those who can't afford the $1,500 Razr foldable but want a Motorola-branded handset can get it instead.
